On Friday February 3, the Arizona Department of Public Safety’s Highway Patrol Division will be a part of a multi-state enforcement program focusing on the use of seatbelts. Other states participating include Oklahoma, Iowa, Mississippi, New Mexico, California, Texas and Kansas. Troopers from those states will focus their enforcement on seatbelt compliance during the entire day.

The Arizona Highway Patrol will be vigilant on Interstate 40 for 24 hours on Friday. Seatbelts and child restraints are credited with saving approximately 13,000 lives according to the National Highway and Transportation Safety Administration. Seatbelts and child restraints also reduce the likeliness of injury during a roll-over crash by 75 percent.

The focus of this enforcement is to ensure the safe travels of motorists on our roadways.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety is a state-level law enforcement agency whose mission is to protect human life and property by enforcing state laws, deterring criminal activity and providing vital support to the State of Arizona and its citizens.
